Classic Line: "Spider?! Bah!"

Trivia: On the phone inside the movie theater, character Mike mentions wanting to see Gordon's ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE. You can see the lobbycards for it in the background, and a poster appears outside the theater. Lobbycards and posters for 309-THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN also appear not-so-subtly.

THE SPIDER was retitled as EARTH VS. THE SPIDER to cash in on the name of another successful movie with a similar title, EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS (1956).

Tall, dark and gaunt, actor MERRITT STONE was in four B.I.G. MSTed movies: Carol's dad in 313-EARTH VS. THE SPIDER; a consoling cop in 319-WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST; a king in 411-THE MAGIC SWORD; and the minister in 414-TORMENTED. He made three films in 1953: Port Sinister; Problem Girls; and Sword of Venus.

Born Gene Stuttenroth, GENE ROTH (1903-1976) is easy to locate because he looks like Gary Busey's father with a craggy face with baggy eyes. He was the sheriff in both 313-EARTH VS. THE SPIDER and 406-ATTACK OF THE GIANT LEECHES. He was the lunch counter guy in 414-TORMENTED and a railroad conductor in 419-THE REBEL SET. His other films include: 1952-Red Planet Mars; 1957-Zombies of Mora Tau; 1958-She Demons; and 1961-The Cat Burglar. Roth also frequently played the heavy in the Three Stooges shorts with Shemp and later Joe as the third Stooge.

And not to be confused with the two previous actors, B.I.G. bit player JACK KOSSLYN portrayed Fraser in 313-EARTH VS. THE SPIDER; a lieutenant in 309-THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN; the KTLA newscaster in 319-WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST; and the ogre in 411-THE MAGIC SWORD. His other films include: 1957-The Devil's Hairpin; 1958-Attack of the Puppet People; 1973-Breezy; and 1977-Empire of the Ants. Kosslyn also made some films with Clint Eastwood: Play Misty for Me; The Eiger Sanction; and High Plains Drifter.

Pert JUNE KENNEY, who plays Mike's girlfriend Carol here, can also be seen as Asmild in 317-VIKING WOMEN and as Betty in 607-BLOODLUST. She was also in Mr. B.I.G.'s Attack of the Puppet People; The Cat Burglar; and Corman's Sorority Girl.
